Between monsoons I have been trying to get out and get some exercise. My limit of exercise is walking my mutts or climbing. My dogs hate the rain. I mean you have to see it to understand, they REALLY hate the rain. One bites at it, the other refuses to go outside in it. :roll:

Climbing sucks in the rain, trust me on that one.

So I have been delivering pistols. A LOT of pistols. Fun because it always allows me to screw up more guns. I am supposed to shoot them all before they leave the shop. I try to do that and sometimes tweak a thing or two after I shoot and then ship them. Easy to get busted for poor quality control if you aren't REAL careful doing that :grin:

I am using the rain as an excuse here!

So my bud Pete (yeppers same Pete) got lassoed into helping me shoot a bucket (velvet lined of course) of guns. Guns in the white, guns ready to ship, new guns, and some warrenty work on old guns, above all, lots of guns.

This is "da boys" shooting the shi.. out of YOUR guns today guys!! We always wear shades in the rain to make the conditions more realistic :grin:

Lots of bullets, some of the guns!



Forced labor or hired mercenary? :grin:
No matter, he can be what ever he wants...Size 50 Long !! Shoots a BCP because he crushes the frame on lesser single stacks :grin: All you hot chicks out there, chill out, and note that new shiny ring finger!



No worries it was the chemo :wink:



Shay's new blaster in the white. What's left of the hair is white and all mine. Sucking on lemons always helps me concentrate on the shooting if you must know :grin:

Cool :grin: I can almost smell the gunpowder, from all the way here in Denver. Looks like you guys had some fun that day


Nice blasters, as allways, are those MD's Gun Grips? Neat stuff.

You live in Seattle and the dogs don't like the rain? :eek: Must be fun for you!

Train in the rain, Dane.
Do not refrain.
It's good for your brain.

In our Paladin activites, we try to adapt to the weather and have learned a few things in the process. Ever shoulder your rifle in a downpour and, as you attempt to sight, it seems that you've developed a cataract...due to a raindrop hanging by surface tension in the rear sight's aperture? A brief pause while presenting the rifle and blowing a puff of air through the rear sight can avoid this.

I've also got some interesting holes in my poncho that resulted from a wind "complicating" a speed rock. I did get the hits.

Besides, training in foul weather just demonstrates "cussedness". A quality we all need to cultivate.

Dane,

The proper rendition of the saying is "If it ain't rainin' then we AIN'T trainin'"!

With all those pretty custom guns, do you have your buddies "draw straws" to see who gets stuck with my Delta Elite that's "only" having all its guts replaced? :grin:

Naah Bruce, Dane sent it to me to learn with when he heard I wanna be a Custom PistolSmith too.

I can`t wait to start!!

I got it all apart too with just the Hammer & Screwdriver and just set up that Bench Grinder I got with all the Auto Tools from Joey when he got retired from the Chop...er Auto Parts business.

Dane says if after I fix it up Custom Like if I can`t get it back together I should drop the parts in the Padded Baggie he sent it too me in and return it, but I figure the Acetylene Torch is the ticket for Custom Gun re-assembly...:razz:

That third photo lends credibility to my pet theory that Dane Burns was a bebop trumpet player in previous life. Gotta give him props though, the cat does have some serious chops! Dizzy Burns, always cool to watch him gettin' mad busy with his axe. :cool:

The photo of Pete is not an optical illusion -- Pete IS a large mammal! :grin:

Ain't it the truth. Cussedness is a virtue.

Dane,

As I drag the digital camera along during much of my shooting fun, I was most interested in the pictures themselves - very nice!

How do you arrange the timing to get the slides at mid-cycle? For me, I usually try and get a sense of rhythm for a string of shots, and can take about 3 pics during the string. If I'm lucky (maybe 1/3 of the time) I can catch the pistol in an interesting mode (e.g., open slide, muzzle flash).

And how did you arrange for the pics from a front quartering angle? Tripod and cable? Trust?

Again, great pics.

Regards,

Mark

When I was a boy my father made me walk 11 miles in the snow to train and he insisted that beavertails and shoes were for sissies...............
